saw what happened in benghazi and those families of the four americans who were killed, i know that you had a real concern for them because you wanted to make sure that their families got the right story. tell me why that's so important to you. >> well, because i went in 2007 and spoke in front of congress to make sure that the story was told correctly for the tillman family, the pat tillman, the football player. and you know, their family was sent so many different fabricated stories that i wanted to ensure, i was there for support. i wasn't there to tell my story because i was fortunate enough to come back home and let people know, you know, i wasn't a rambo warrior fighting on the streets of iraq. and this is what really happened and unfortunately, pat didn't get to come home and tell his story, but there are so many more soldiers that are just like that, who are not fortunate enough to come home and their families are just being told whatever coverup story that they can get. >> mike: long-term what are you going to have to deal with as a result of what happened in iraq for
to first start with benghazi. do you see benghazi as being a turning point of sorts in both kpozing the failures of the obama administration and also kpozing the influence or the lack thereof of america globally? >> well it could well be. you look back on turning points at the moment they occur and realize what happened. the administration has not responded to the attacks. he has not brought the people involved in it to justice of any kind. we haven't retaliated. it is over three months when four americans were killed. i think the lack of response, the lack of interest by much of the mainstream media, the lack of debate about it in the presidential campaign certainly indicate an administration that is very comfortable without paying attention to events in the middle east in particular, comfortable with the prospect of american decline, and comfortable underplaying the continuing threat of international terrorism. and i find that very disturbing. heather: disturbing when we take a larger look at the big picture and some of the issues that we addressed when i was introducing you. long

inchbored inch bureau after christmas. >> our ambassador who died in benghazi tragically was communicating with you. he was communicating information to you. it's a great loss that he's not with us. what was he able to tell you? >> he was purchase furnishing us information that he was able to extract from bits and pieces that was scattered all over the offices, and as he gathered this information he would make it a point to get a hold of one of us in the organization of the families that have stuck together, and we would relay that information on. possibly what we were looking for was who else was involved in the downing of pan am 103, was assad, the iranian government? we know that they at one time were very much involved, but to what degree we can't tell you, we don't know and i don't think i want to speculate. jaime: well, stan, the thing is, the lone bomber got a hero's welcome when he returned, and he's now died. do you still believe that there were other people responsible? >> well i think that they provided -- they provided information as if they were to cooperate toward the bombing
